Eva Marcille

Last year, Eva Marcille was a “Friend of the Housewives.” Now she is a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is back with a new baby and she’s in the middle of wedding planning. This means that there will probably be bridal shower drama, bachelorette party antics, and of course the wedding itself.

Not much happened during the first episode of Season 11. Personally, I think it’s because Kenya Moore did not return, but I still have hope for the rest of the season. The first episode was essentially a prologue to the season. We got caught up on everyone’s lives and laid the foundation for the season’s storylines.

The one major change from last season is NeNe Leakes’ husband Gregg Leakes‘ cancer diagnosis. She revealed that he has Stage 3 colon cancer. It was just so tough to watch.

It’s not as if NeNe isn’t busy living her life and getting that coin. Now she is doing everything she always has and taking care of Gregg. Next week the cast heads down to Miami for NeNe’s store opening.

Eva did not reveal anything at all much in her Bravo blog post about the first episode, but she did write,”I’m super excited to pause wedding planning for just a little while and go to Miami to support NeNe. To be able to be there for her and add a smile to her day was reason enough for me to pack everything and hop on a flight!”

Eva also discussed wedding planning. She wrote, “OMG…the wedding process is crazy. It’s super exciting and can be a lot of fun, however, there’s definitely a lot of stress and anxiety that comes along with it. I did not want my wedding to be just a big party, I wanted it to be a moment of celebration with family, friends, and loved ones that mean a lot to me. So I wanted to be very strategic about my guest list.”

She wasn’t that strategic since it seems like entire Real Housewives of Atlanta cast was at the wedding. Then again, that could be deemed “strategic” since it does guarantee that her wedding gets some major screen time.
